Depressions Haze

The conspiracy of the depressed mind,
Profound and wide reaching,
Deep into the furthest bowels of despair,
Leaves the body listless,
The torpid reality of transcendent experience,
Robbing the cradle of energy,
Such that the body becomes a prison,
The mind a penitentiary,
And the soul a vagabond,
As if on a runaway train,
Cattle cars filled with emotional pickpockets,
Each waiting, in turn,
To supplement a growing distress,
Where one and one do not make two,
Where one and one are as irrelevant,
As the day of the week,
Or the hour of the day.

The depressed mind is an anomaly,
One that feeds off its own irrationality,
Presented as personal truth,
Alighting an insecurity which rises above all else,
As war declared between separate parts of self,
Reveal a bitter tyrant,
Hell bent on psyche’s domination,
Where I become we,
We becomes three,
These battles of intense denigration,
Belittle even the minor successes,
As Black Dog becomes more readily apparent,
Day after day,
Running roughshod over rationality,
It’s carte blanche of mental anguish,
Inflicted disagreeably without control,
As the body becomes its slave,
And it will not be leashed in.

The conspiracy of this depressed mind,
Reveals a struggle that no one man, woman or child should have to fight,
Suffer the indignity of sacrificed self,
No longer sovereign within,
There shall be no purveyance,
Short of chemically induced malaise,
Tortured existence,
Whereby depression requires and conspires,
Efforts that when unchecked,
Leave the body ragged and destroyed,
Sweet sleep,
A distant memory,
Leading further into the Black Dog’s lair,
Where redemption,
Seems like a cruel and twisted joke,
Played out daily,
On the victim,
Of depressions haze.
